Your trip will always start on a Sunday.
So Students (and parents) how about a little insight and information regarding what you will have to look forward to throughout your journey when you join the 2014 Spanish Summer camp in Costa Rica….
You will be continuously surrounded by rich culture and extravagant beauty. There are private as well as group classes available. The groups never exceed six students and have your safety and comfort in mind. You will also have the company of a native English Chaperone alongside you for your journey. Your days will be packed full of different ways to enhance your learning, as well as understanding of the Spanish language, culture, and heritage. Lessons were built for and around you, the teen, and your desire to be challenged with knowledge while you enthusiastically experience historic Heredia and the beautiful landscapes of Costa Rica.
Each student will be immersed within the community and hosted by a local, loving and trustworthy homestay family. Each student will have a private room. You will be made to feel right at home and treated as a family member, within their home. You will share breakfast and dinner, as well as join the family on outings.
You will be given 20 intensive hours of Spanish Immersion classes and study at the historic Heredia campus. Your bilingual chaperone will assist you and be with you on all of the group activities. Some of the many activities you will experience as a student include, but are not limited to, weekend trips to some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful beaches and mountains and mid-week trips to volcanoes, gorgeous waterfalls and animal sanctuaries. You will even experience coffee and chocolate tours. You will get to let loose when you involve yourselves in Latin dancing and cooking classes.
